With the win, Harper became the first member of the Nationals to take home the Home Run Derby Crown.

"No, for Home Run Derby and All-Star Game, there is no pressure", Harper said. Harper lost to Yoenis Cespedes in the 2013 final at Citi Field in NY. I threw a lot of bad pitches, but I scooted up a little bit this year.

"(I told him to) make sure you look good out there. He always does, so that works. "He hit my barrel nine straight or something like that".

For Bryce Harper, home is where the hardware is. He hit six homers measured at more than 440 feet, the most of any competitor.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas remains open to Nabil Fekir Liverpool move
But Lyon president Aulas has opened up on the possibility of Fekir still making a move to Anfield this summer. Last week, Lyon's president Jean-Michel Aulas also suggested that a deal with Liverpool could be reignited.

No. 3 seed Max Muncy vs. Muncy outhomered Baez 17-16.

With 17, Hoskins tied Muncy for the most in the first round, though Muncy and Harper stopped before time expired because they had already beaten their opponent. Schwarber then barely edged out Bregman, the only American League hitter, by a score of 16-15.

She also attended events which were sponsored by special interest groups and attended by politicians and political candidates. Maria Butina was arrested Sunday on a charge of conspiracy to act as an unregistered agent of the Russian government.

Hoskins faces Schwarber in the other semifinal. However, Schwarber gained momentum and hit 21 to push past Hoskins.

Bregman - the lone AL representative - appeared defeated with a minute left, but he mounted a late surge and lost when his final swing produced a drive that landed at the base of the center-field wall. Harper responded with a performance that drew the loudest cheers of the night at Nationals Park.

Sir Bernard told the programme that the Chequers plan was "dead", with opposition from both wings of the Tory party. I think it was a genuine clever attempt at a compromise that could work. "We need to keep our eyes on the prize".

Jesus Aguilar, Bryce Harper, Max Muncy, Alex Bregman, Kyle Schwarber, Javier Baez, Freddie Freeman and Rhys Hoskins all showed their chops, but it was Harper who earned the title as the 2018 Home Run Derby victor in his home stadium. That it was merely the All-Star Home Run Derby mattered not to Harper or the Washington Nationals fans, who were thrilled to see their hometown hero deliver the night's final longball Monday.
